Productive use of renewable energy (pure)

More than 12 million young people join the labour force every year in Africa for only 3 million jobs

Youth unemployment is likely to be one of Africa’s greatest challenges over the next 30 years.

This programme focuses on providing electricity and equipment to improve the productivity of small businesses in low-income communities. These PURE solutions (Productive Use of Renewable Energy) foster entrepreneurship, create jobs and tackle the causes of migration.

This approach goes hand in hand with sustainable distribution. We identify trustworthy partners with whom we can move from solar lamps to PURE, and adapt to field requirements, e.g., refrigerators, agricultural processing equipment (grain grinders and food dryers), water pumps and other power tools.
